LPG liquid petroleum gas is a mixture of light oil gas and heavy natural gascomponents that are being transferred through a pipeline as a liquid underhigh pressure. Typical LPG contains methane-ethane, propane-butane andpentane-hexane fractions. During pipeline transportation each LPG componentis undergoing constant changes related to longitudinal mixing processes.This article presents a method of calculation of the LPG composition atthe end of a pipeline when an initial composition of the LPG components atthe beginning of the pipeline is known.
